Fun at the Fair : )

Earlier today, GF Sue D (w/o blog) & I visited the Lake County Fair. In the Family Arts & Crafts Building, Deanna Bassett was demonstrating. I learned how to make a lanyard (I think spelled correctly) using beading wire, crimping tool (crimp the beads to hold the whole thing in place), and lanyard. We chose a charm, beads, spacer beads, and woo-la ... A nifty purse decoration : ) I like the way it turned out!
Friday, there are knitting & crocheting demos. Saturday, Quilting demos. Sunday, Locker Hooking + Quilting. I looked up Locker Hooking on-line. Is this interesting or what???

More progress on Forest Song. And, yes, this design has birds in the corners & a beautiful bird's nest charm in the center.

Ha Ha. And, yes, I have made small progress on my M.Garry Flatfold. I made the small scissors fob! I hope to get the cording made tonight & start stitching the inside pocket.

But did you go to the Goat Milking Contest??? =) Your lanyard is lovely. And so are your WIPs!

I do love the lanyard you made. I wish that our Fairs were that good. It's mostly just rides and advertising these days. A real dissapointment.

The Mary Garry flatfold is just so beautiful and your Elizabeth Designs WIP is looking great.

It sounds as though you're having a blast! The locker hooking looks pretty neat.

I just love your old WIP's that you've pulled out!

Ilove the hemstitching you did on the flatfold. I'm printing a copy of the photo to put in my suggestions file. Thanks for sharing.

Nothing better than a trip to the fair.

I wish I'd gone to your fair! (I went to the Porter County fair for the first time this year - we usually go to the LaPorte County fair). The lanyard you made is gorgeous!
